I received from bec99.
I got this monster artwork that kind of reminds me of alien monsters!

And this cute hoop. They look like little amoebas to me. Sad little amoeba monsters.

And these two sheets of stickers:

3  New to Encaustic Art in More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works by kwality570 on: May 31, 2016 08:00:35 AM
I was partnered up with the ever so talented alteredmommy in the wall art swap and I knew I needed to create something out of my usual monster comfort zone for her and I came up with the idea of trying encaustic. I used some gift cards and bought an encaustic art starter kit from R&F. Definitely fun and worth it! The kit comes with two little encaustic boards and one larger cradle board. I practiced on the small boards before attempting this one with the larger board for alteredmommy.

I spent an afternoon creating gelli prints and then cut them with my Silhouette machine to get the shapes before adding them to the piece.

Here's a detail shot of the gelli pieces and the texture.

I used up all of the encaustic medium that came with the kit so now I need to get some more so I can create more pieces!

I also received a beautiful abstract landscape from AlteredMommy. It's amazing.

Here is a shot of the beautiful detail she captured with the acrylics.

Look at the detail in the background. I love this texture!

Thank you so much, PromisedHeartbrk. Now I'm nervous about the one that I sent to you! I hope you like it as much.

In the last shrine swap round, perfectlybohemian was my angel after my partner flaked. I received a super adorable shrine from her. This is the amazing piece she sent me for this round:

Yes, it is the night scene to go with the day scene she sent me last time!
Here is the day scene from the last one, in the same awesome box, by the way:

Here is a close up of the sneaky little fox:

Squeeeal!  I'm in love.  Thank you so much!!!
